Black soot under hood after EGR delete install?

I've been having some troubles with black soot under the hood and black smoke in the cab when driving in 3rd gear @ low RPM. The black smoke comes in the cab just for a couple seconds and then as the truck reaches higher RPMs it quits. Also when I first start my truck it almost smells like exhuast gas's inside the cab like it is coming out of the heater.

I thought it was my up pipe because the 2 bolts on the bottom came loose so I fixed them and thought that would fix it but it still smelled like exhaust gas's in the cab. I then found my U-bolt was loose on my exhuast pipe and fixed that issue. Now both are fixed and still have the problem. I'm stumped any help would be appriceated.

I had the same issue with mine after egr delete, in fact it is still messed up. Make sure the exhaust flanges on inlet and outlet side of the turbo are meeting up perfectly... Also make sure your y-pipe flex pipes arent cracked, i say this because mine cracked after the delete. You have a tuner on the truck?

yea I have a SCT iTSX with an extreme street tune. And thanks for the info, I had a hunch it had something to do with the turbo flanges I'll have to check that out.

Have someone step on the go pedal real quick and watch where the soot is comin from. My whole engine is covered because the flex pipes are cracked, its a fairly pricey part. If you put the fan on high you will most likely see soot come through the vents.
